Our most popular workshop gives you the knowledge and confidence to switch your camera off auto mode.

The DSLR Learning Beginners Masterclass is intensive but straight forward and you will be taught from the ground up. During the first half of the course, you will explore the functions of your DSLR camera, how they work and when to use them as well as learning the basics of photography.

After lunch, you will go out and take some photographs using the techniques you have learnt. If you are not a beginner and are merely just looking to refresh your skills, the DSLR Learning Beginners Masterclass is a great way to advance your skills and knowledge.

Due to James's unique teaching style, a wealth of information is covered on one day up to what many photographers would consider as intermediate level. Once this course is complete you can then go on to more advanced courses such as our DSLR Learning Intermediate Workshop and DSLR Learning Night Photography Course
